    Words can be very powerful. We can use words to build people up or tear people down. James says, "do not talk down to one another." The issue is humility. The way of Jesus is humility, seeing others as equally created in the image of God, using our words in a way that honors Christ.

    Authentic: Friend or Foe
    Series: Authentic
    James says that friendship with the world makes us enemies of God. Pastor Chip explains that James is talking about friendship with the "me first" way of thinking that the world promotes. Sacrifice and serving others is the way of Jesus.

    Authentic: Fake News
    Series: Authentic
    The term "fake news" has been in the news lately and sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference between what's real and what's false. James tells us that wisdom is like that. There's earthly wisdom (fake wisdom) and then there's the "wisdom from above," godly wisdom. Pastor Chip shares how to tell the difference in your own life.

    The Christian faith and life is not just words. If we are truly followers of Jesus it will show in our actions.

    God’s Promises
    Easter and baptism are about the same thing. They are about the promises of God. The Resurrection of Jesus is the proof.

    One of the hardest things to accept is God's judgment. Because we are all guilty and subject to His judgment. But James reminds us of God's mercy. But he also reminds us that in some way God judges us the same way we judge others.

    Sadly, too often Christians don't look or sound any different from the world. James 1:19 says, "Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger." If Christians did just that it would be so different from the world that it would create opportunities to share the good news of Jesus.

    Authentic: Blame Game
    Series: Authentic
    When things are difficult God wants us to respond by asking Him for wisdom and growing in our faith through the trial. But we don't always respond that way. Sometimes we respond by blaming others or even blaming God.
